Vienna, AUSTRIA, May 5th, 2020 – Just because several sports leagues have to take an understandable break from their daily business, there is still room for news on the international transfer market of intellectual properties: THQ Nordic and Koch Media today set up shop for swapping publishing rights for some of their respective intellectual properties.

 

  • From Koch Media to THQ Nordic: Risen, Sacred, Rush for Berlin, Second Sight and Singles: Flirt Up Your Life
The warmest of welcomes to Risen, (now THQ Nordic unifies all Piranha Bytes titles under one roof), Sacred (some of us invested more time than they would like to admit), Rush for Berlin, Second Sight and Singles: Flirt Up your Life. Evaluations on remasters, ports, potential sequels & new content etc. will start right away. We have something in mind already.

 

  • From THQ Nordic to Koch Media: Red Faction, Painkiller

Farewell, Painkiller!

Hell & Damnation was just an all around awesome project to work on. It is hard to believe that it was already 8 years ago for Daniel Garner and actually marked our (then: Nordic Games) first big title. What we had was truly special and although we made a lot of mistakes, we also did a lot of really awesome stuff when we published you. Unfortunately, though, today marks the day where we will let you go. We know you will get a lot of love in your new home.

Farewell, Red Faction!

We loved working on Re-Mars-tered (yes, we do have a certain reputation for corny names for remasters, and we are damn proud of it), but the time has come to put our sledgehammers on the shelf. Live long and prosper!
